Frank Iero and the Patience

Frank Iero has shaken off his old band name to explore new sounds on his second album. Operating under the guise of Frank Iero and the Patience (rather than the previous "andthe Cellabration"), the former My Chemical Romance guitarist ventures beyond his usual sonic parameters. Co-produced by Ross Robinson (Slipknot), Iero channels Johnny Cash on "Miss Me", fires up unapologetic punk angst on first single "I'm a Mess" and mixes melodic alt-rock on "Oceans". The album closes with "September 6th", a heartbreakingly raw song about Iero's late grandfather. A mixed bag of styles, Parachutes is Iero finding himself.
